    My brother's assistant of 18 years just resigned from his small
    medical practice and it will take a while to replace her. In the
    meantime he wants to be able to monitor the patient waiting area from
    any of his 4 exam rooms, all of which have networked computers. I was
    thinking of an IP/network video camera but then I remembered that he
    also has a camera outside of his office which is used to see who is
    ringing the doorbell, this camera is old and is connected to an old BW
    CRT. I told him it might be a good idea to install some new cameras
    around the office, not more than 4, and to record to a DVR. I have
    been googling and I read that GE makes a good product. I am
    considering the SDVR-4PII-80 StoreSafe Pro II (link below). As for the
    cameras, I was looking at the bullet cameras because the office is
    very small and a larger camera might intimidate patients. I would also
    appreciate recommendations for an online vendor. I think a $2,500
    budget for parts would be in his range.

    You can do it for a lot less than $2500, see

    What you can do is get a 4-8 channel DVR and put it on the network,
    then install the remote viewing software on each workstation in the
    exam rooms to watch the front lobby.
